The best way to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless sea of photographers who need to sell their work. This informative article seeks to teach you the best way to start selling your photography.

We see several of them, and photos every day in connection with promotion. Photos of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do unless they know where the scene is, buyers buy a lovely photograph of a beach scene. They want to buy local photographs of local areas. They would like to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson is to shoot pictures of local scenery. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier heading out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something amazing. Don't forget, however, that you'll need to photograph that scene in ways that they wouldn't view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in beautiful light and make it stunning.

Should you intend on showing off your work, you have to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your best images and place them in one folder on your computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' If the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you will get responses that are inconsistent, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer just does not care. The truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser simply doesn't care. The proof is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can not locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your web site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the marketplace is really saturated that it's extremely hard to sell. You need to go local, to overcome the group. Make your town proud of your town.
